Thread: Hand Controls on the Right??

  1. #11
    How do you shift into reverse and apply brake at the same time? Easy to do with left hand controls - left hand brakes and right hand shifts gear? What do you do with right right controls?

    I drive with righthand mounted controls (in Europe) and never have any problem requesting them when I rent a car in North America.

    With the Menox controls there's a rocker switch on the brake so you can hold the brake on while at a stoplight, switching into reverse, etc.

    Right hand brakes and left hand shifts. It is more awkward, but doable.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    Bad news, I just checked out Wells Engberg website since I use their controls also, CT100, rotary-push type. They appear to have ceased operations as of 10/15/18.

    That means no hand on the steering wheel. Not good. It makes it awkward to do a 3-point turn and impossible to drive a semi-automatic transmission in manual mode, which is all the fun in a BMW.

    Don't want a semi automatic or a BMW for that matter.

    BTW which hand do you have on the steering wheel? You said you have one on the brake and the other on the gear shift:

    Back when I was a kid and my dad lit his cigs with a paper match. To do that while driving he steered with his left knee, used his hands to strike the match and light up.
